Convertible Debuts in 6 Days

Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

The new Viking 58 Convertible headlines our annual Dealer Meeting and Sea Trial Event next week. The three-stateroom, two-head blue runner will exceed all expectations as both a tournament champion and versatile family cruising yacht with all the quality, comfort and superior engineering you’ve come to expect from Viking.

Our signature center console walk-around helm provides excellent 360-degree sightlines. The Viking subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronics has custom designed and installed the 58 C‘s electronics, navigation, safety and audio-visual systems. Palm Beach Towers, another Viking Company, has outfitted the boat with a custom hardtop with drop-down electronics box and a full tuna tower. These sister companies play a major role in our ability to deliver turn-key-ready yachts.

Hull number one is powered with a pair of the new MTU V10 2000 M96 engines rated at 1,600 MHP each. With this power and standard fuel, she exceeds 40 knots at the top end and delivers a comfortable cruise in the mid-30-knot range. Three different engine options from MAN are also available.
You’ll be hard pressed to find a boat in its class with a cockpit larger than the 58 C‘s, which measures 165 square feet. An arsenal of fishing equipment and an abundance of storage give you the fire power to put you in the winner’s circle.
Forward of the salon’s L-shaped lounge, the galley includes high-gloss teak-faced cabinetry, engineered-stone counters, a 2-stool bar area, under-counter Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer units with deep pull-out drawers, a 4-burner cooktop and a microwave/convection oven.

The master and forward staterooms each have custom inner-spring mattresses and private access to the heads with spacious fiberglass shower stalls and built-in molded seats. The forward stateroom is offered with either a queen or crossover berth arrangement. The port stateroom features side-by-side berths.

The 58 Convertible is a second-generation Viking. The “Gen I” 58 C (right) was a tremendous success for Viking throughout the 1990s, clearly defining our position as the leader in sportfish design and manufacturing.

The 58C will be part of a fleet of Vikings from 48 to 72 feet on display at our Dealer Meeting and Sea Trial Event from Monday, September 10 through Wednesday, September 12. Contact your authorized Viking dealer or Gina Waldron for more information.

37 Billfish August 23rd, 2018

Playing Big

37 Billfish

Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

Viking quality stretches from one end of our fleet to the other. Playing much bigger than her LOA, the 37 Billfish possesses the same industry-leading fishability, engineering and comfort as our larger convertibles all the way up to the 92 C. Click on the image above for a stem-to-stern virtual tour of the best under-40-foot sportfishing/cruising boat on the water.
The 37 BF makes perfect sense for Viking enthusiasts who are ready to join the family or current owners who might want another vessel for a secondary location. The lower helm station gives northern fishermen the ability to lengthen their season. Southern anglers can order the optional air conditioning on the command deck and enjoy protection from the sun, while avoiding the heat.
The Billfish offers simplicity and ease of maintenance, serving as a ready-to-go fishing machine equipped for inshore work, as well as a canyon-capable tournament contender. Cockpit amenities include 86 square feet of work space, a transom door with a lift gate, fresh and raw-water wash downs, a transom live well, tackle stowage, a bait freezer, and insulated in-deck fish boxes. We build a laminated mounting plate into the cockpit sole for rock-solid fighting chair, rocket launcher or table installations.
The center console tournament-style helm is outfitted with a fiberglass helm pod with stainless steel wheel and Palm Beach-style controls, power-assist hydraulic steering, a Release Marine helm chair, flanking lounges and a forward console seat. An optional three-sided Costa Clear enclosure provides weather protection, and our subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronics can design and install a custom navigation and communication package for turnkey-ready delivery.

After a hard day of fishing, there’s nothing better than getting out of the elements and off your feet for some well-earned relaxation in a comfortable air-conditioned, full-size cabin. A private forward stateroom features a queen bed, and the stateroom can be ordered with over and under berths. The L-shape galley is well dressed with Corian countertops, a stainless-steel sink, an electric cooktop, a microwave/convection oven and under-counter refrigeration.

Twin Cummins QSB-6.7 550MHP diesels with conventional shafts are conveniently located under electrically-actuated port and starboard command deck seating areas. We offer the boat with the Cummins Inboard Joystick System with two joysticks and bow thruster with control buttons in Palm Beach-style control handles. The 37 Billfish is also engineered for the installation of a Seakeeper SK 6, bumping up your comfort level another notch.

Don’t settle for just pictures of the 37 Billfish. Contact your authorized Viking dealer to experience the real thing.

Meet the Next-Generation 58 C August 3rd, 2018




Meet the Next-Generation 58 C


Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube


The Viking Yacht Company is proud to announce the second generation of our 58 Convertible, the successor to the legendary 1990s model that helped build our proud company into a sportfishing powerhouse.
From 1991 to 2000 we sold 110 of our first-generation 58 Convertibles, including the pretty-in-pink Miss Allied shown above. “It was our largest boat at the time and a major milestone for us,” Viking President and CEO Patrick Healey says of the “Gen I” 58.




And now, 18 years later, our “Gen II” 58 C is poised to stake its claim as a tournament champion and the best high-performing family cruising yacht in its class. The 58 arrives as the culmination of nearly 55 years of convertible sportfishing design, engineering and manufacturing experience.


“The boat is ideal for the owner/operator family man or the hardcore tournament competitor,” says Viking Design Manager David Wilson. “She’ll compete in performance, engineering and interior accommodations with larger boats, certainly those well into the 60-plus-foot range.”




The 58 C comes on strong with our signature walk-around center console flybridge helm with flanking lounges, 165-square-foot cockpit and observation mezzanine. The private and comfortable three-stateroom, two-head layout maximizes the vessel’s 17 ft. 9 in. beam. A forward stateroom with a queen berth is standard, with an optional cross-over arrangement. Our design team has done a phenomenal job with the salon and galley arrangement, creating a highly functional open layout with a balanced mix of amenities for entertaining, relaxing or dining.


Propulsion packages from MAN and MTU are offered with the “Gen II” Viking 58 Convertible. A pair of the new MTU V10 2000 M96L engines rated at 1,600 HP each power hull number one.
The 58 Convertible will make her debut at the annual Viking Dealer Meeting and Sea Trial Event September 10 through 12. For more information contact your authorized Viking dealer or Gina Waldron. You can also see the 58 C at her world premiere at the 2018 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, October 31 through November 4.

72 Convertible
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

Poised to make her mark on the tournament trail, our stunning Flag Blue
Viking 72 demonstrator boat leaves New Gretna and heads for open water. The 45-plus-knot convertible, along with our Viking 68 demo, will compete in about a half dozen events this summer in the Mid-Atlantic region, the epicenter of white marlin fishing. The boats, with teams that include many of the company’s principals, function as engineering, design, sales and customer service tools that help Viking build a better boat every day.

The Viking 72 demo serves as a testing platform for innovative technologies, such as Furuno’s new DFF-3D Multi-Beam Sonar and AX Series Radar, which were custom installed on the flybridge by our subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronics. The equipment is housed in our signature center console walk-around helm. Another Viking-owned company, Palm Beach Towers, is responsible for the hardtop (including its drop-down electronics box and teaser reels) and anodized aluminum tuna tower.

From the transom live well to the air-conditioned observation mezzanine, the 209-square-foot cockpit provides not only tournament-winning fishing equipment and design elements but conveniences to keep guests comfortable and happy as they take in the action. Just a few of the features on our demo boat include an optional Release Marine Trillion Series fighting chair; a teak sole, covering boards and coaming; a starboard crushed ice machine with discharge; and fittings and plumbing for two on-deck live wells.

Satin walnut adorns the 72‘s interior. The port-side galley has miles of countertop space and two Sub-Zero pull-out under-counter refrigerators and one freezer. The raised starboard dinette seats four comfortably. The second HD TV on the bulkhead can display sonar, radar and other electronics data from the bridge.

Your private palace, the master stateroom, includes a king bed with Handcraft mattress and underneath storage, twin maple-lined hanging closets, a pair of credenzas and end tables and a full-width upholstered headboard.

Twin 2,635-hp MTU Series 2000 V16 M96L diesels power the 72, not only giving her great speed but the acceleration and torque to make this 72-footer handle and feel like a 50-footer. With such high performance, the demo team can travel long distances faster than competitors, a great advantage when fishing the Mid-Atlantic.

Our industry-leading Viking 72 (above) and Viking 68 will both be shown at the Viking Dealer Meeting and Sea Trial Event, September 10-12, in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Please contact Viking’s Gina Waldron, or your authorized Viking dealer for more information. Meantime, you can catch them on the tournament circuit. For our demo boat calendar please click here.

Machine and Metal Shops
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

Over 90% of every Viking is designed and manufactured in-house like this 44 Convertible – resulting in the production of the world’s finest sportfishing and motor yachts. Nowhere is the vertical integration of our company more apparent than in our Machine and Metal Shops, where thousands of components and parts are manufactured by a skilled team of 24 fabricators, welders, machinists and painters.

The Metal Shop, which also consists of a fabricating and welding hub and a paint shop, supplies the Machine Shop with raw materials that are manufactured into finished parts. Above: Welder/Fabricator Javier Torres works on a Viking convertible’s anodized aluminum flybridge ladder.

Left: Machinist Lubosh Porizka operates the Fadal machine, a manufacturing workhorse with 30 separate tools that produces everything from copper bus bars (connection point for circuits) to electrical distribution panels to our unique steering manifolds to various templates, brackets and backing plates. Right: The Fadal has already completed cutouts in this aluminum distribution panel for switches and gauges. Lubosh uses a manual drill press to countersink the panel’s mounting holes.

Viking‘s men of mettle are led by Machine Shop Supervisor Tom Lagocki, right, and Metal Shop Supervisor Joe Martorana, left. 
Joe stands next to the 1-inch-thick aluminum saddles used to reinforce our stringer-mounted engine installations. Tom, a 30-plus-year Viking veteran who has been instrumental in the development and success of both shops, shows a drawer-full of copper bus bars used in the electrical distribution panels.

Above: Welder/Fabricator Brian Nevitt uses a pipe crowning machine to shape the anodized aluminum bowrail (covered with protective white vinyl) of a 68 Convertible. Below: Built to order, the rail will wrap around the owner-requested bow pulpit. Brian measures for stanchion height, which fits the rake of the rail.

Above: Frames for air conditioning units await chemical baths before they are powder coated. Below: Viking pioneered the use of powder coating metals for saltwater corrosion and abrasion resistance. Here, Painter Dan Jackson uses an electrostatic sprayer to uniformly apply white powder coat to the aft rail of a 72 Enclosed Bridge. The structure will then be moved into a separate chamber and heated at 400 degrees for 35 minutes, fusing the paint and aluminum for maximum durability.

92 Skybridge
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube


One word best describes the Viking 92 Skybridge yacht: awesome. More than aesthetically stunning, our skybridge design is also functional, combining all the visibility benefits of an elevated control station with the weather protection and comfort of a Viking enclosed bridge.

With her two-level mezzanine and 238-square-foot tournament-ready cockpit with fighting chair, the 92 thrives as a luxury cruising yacht and blue-water sportfishing convertible.
The skybridge command station shares many of the design traits of our open flybridge convertibles, such as the walk-around center console with raised teak helm pod and recessed and protected areas for multi-function displays, engine and steering controls and electronics controllers. With the console’s molded-in step, the captain’s sightlines are enhanced further. The hardtop holds an electric teaser reel and power-actuated drop-down electronics box.




Guests can relax in a pair of finely upholstered console seats or outboard lounges (with forward-facing backrests). For balance and safety, toekick space is built into the console perimeter and at the lounge bases. 
A refrigerated drink box and sink is conveniently located on centerline, between the lounges.




Even with its forward wrap-around console that includes a Stidd helm seat and flanking companion seating, the enclosed bridge has significant room aft for an L-shape lounge with a walnut cocktail table to port, another seat to starboard, refrigeration and an entertainment system.




The salon, galley and dining areas are separate but open to one another, with a wide walkway from the salon door to the companionway. Recessed overhead lights along with indirect rope lighting under the valances warm the interior’s satin walnut finish. High-end appliances and conveniences – such as Sub-Zero refrigeration and freezer units – fill the well-equipped galley, and a formal dining area can seat six.



The flowing unbroken sheer, the double black-masked windshields, and the tall swept-back superstructure create an unforgettable profile. Three command stations – skybridge, enclosed bridge and on the EB‘s aft deck – give the captain the best operating position for different weather situations and uses.

Power Trip May 30th, 2018

The Viking Engineroom
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

Perhaps no other area of a Viking illustrates our meticulous attention to detail better than the engineroom. From its neatly bundled and loomed wiring, to its bright Snow White Awlgrip finish to its 360-degree access, the Viking engineroom clearly leads the industry in all facets of mechanical quality, functionality and ingenuity.
With Viking Senior Project Engineer Bill Gibbons leading the way, let’s take a look at some of the modern machinery and systems in the engineroom of one of our latest models, the Viking 68 Convertible. Above: Bill points out that the custom Viking exhaust manifold installation on the twin 1,945-hp MTUs arches upward before turning outboard, ensuring access to the generators.
The engineroom’s fiberglass-encapsulated foam stringers are reinforced on top with several layers of carbon fiber. The engines are mechanically fastened to one-inch-thick aluminum saddles that are bonded to the tops of the stringers with a special methyl methacrylate (MMA) adhesive, says Bill, who has more than 3,000 Viking builds under his belt in 42 years in New Gretna. “It’s a rock-solid installation.”

Proven state-of-the-art systems and machinery lines the engineroom periphery. Outboard of the MTUs, the Delta-T engineroom ventilation system, with its thermostatically-controlled supply and discharge fans, provides fresh air circulation and water-intrusion suppression. Its pneumatically-controlled ventilation dampers can be closed manually but also shut automatically when the fire suppression system is engaged.

Access to Viking‘s custom centralized seawater system with dual pumps and strainers couldn’t be easier- simply remove a panel from the centerline engineroom walkway. Every strainer, pump, filter, hose, connection or any other part in a Viking engineroom is identified with clearly visible and permanent labels.

Left: On the port bulkhead, the freshwater purification system filters along with the port engine LOP (local operating panel) and fire suppression system are in plain view and fully accessible. Right: Bill examines the control box for the centralized sea water system on the starboard bulkhead, which is outboard of the engine’s LOP. Note the easy access to the MTU’s top-mounted oil filters.
 “We’ve set the standard and continue to raise the bar,” says Bill. “That’s what building a better boat every day is all about.”

Ready for Action May 9th, 2018

Viking 48 Convertible
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

With the 48 C, Viking delivers a high-performing sportfishing and cruising convertible with big-boat amenities – three staterooms, two heads, galley and salon – that’s still quite manageable for two-person operation and maintenance. It’s a smart, fun boat with luxurious accommodations from America’s best boatbuilder.
Our custom-designed center console walk-around helm gives the captain 360-degree visibility and a clear view of the cockpit. Flanking lounges and additional seating forward keep guests comfortable. The console holds an expansive recessed and covered area for electronics and dual radio boxes.
Our cockpit design plays an integral role in making the 48 C a hard-charging tournament-winning fishing machine. Coamings are rounded for comfort, toekick space provides safety and balance, a backing plate is laminated into the sole for rocket launcher or fighting chair installation, the radiused mezzanine tooling increases cockpit real estate, and large scuppers make for quick drainage.

The deckhouse contains three main areas – the galley, dinette and salon – that function independently but are also connected in an open, free-flowing layout. The master stateroom’s queen-size walk-around bed with a Handcraft mattress ensures restful nights, and there is plenty of stowage available in the maple-lined hanging locker and drawers.

We can power the boat with twin 900-, 1,000-, or 1,200-MHP MAN diesel inboards. The engineroom is expertly finished and blanketed with Snow White Awlgrip for enhanced visibility and easier maintenance. Like her larger sister ships, the 48 C can be equipped with most Viking mechanical systems, such as a centralized seawater and engineroom ventilations systems, an ice machine, a water maker and a Seakeeper gyro stabilizer.

We’re putting the finishing touches on two 48 Convertibles at our make-ready dock in New Gretna, New Jersey, and another pair of 48 Cs are under construction upriver at the Viking Mullica boatbuilding plant. We invite you to contact your authorized Viking dealer to learn more about this very popular Viking model.
Product Announcement
Viking would like to make you aware that one our valued vendors, Parker, has issued a product update bulletin alerting consumers that certain fuel filter elements are being illegally copied and sold into the market. Click here for specific information.

82 Cockpit Motor Yacht
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

You’re looking at the second Viking 82 Cockpit Motor Yacht, a three-deck enclosed bridge luxury yacht fisher with the performance DNA and tournament-tested cockpit of our legendary convertible sportfishing boats and more interior space and accommodations than any other boat in its class. She’s a beauty, right? Our shipwrights are just finishing up and fine-tuning the 82 CMY for its owner.
As a semi-custom builder, Viking is able to satisfy our customers far beyond their expectations. Special requests are met with a smile and assurances that the job will be done correctly and completed on time. The owner of this 82 added several personal touches to the boat, including the orange bootstripe.
The 150-square-foot teak-planked cockpit is accessed from dual staircases, each flanked by perfectly-placed handrails inboard and outboard. A showcase of intelligent design, the cockpit and after deck serve as an inviting arena for fishing, diving, paddle boarding and other fun water activities. The large centerline hatch provides easy access to the diesels. This boat is powered with a pair of CAT C32A powerplants (1,925 MHP); MTU and MAN propulsion packages are also offered.

Both our 82 CMY as well as 75 and 93 motor yachts can be built with open or enclosed bridges. Our subsidiary Atlantic Marine Electronics will take care of all your electronics and audio/visual needs in custom installations. Dual wing stations with slide-out engine controls give the captain excellent sightlines and flexibility when docking.

Stainless-steel-framed sliding glass doors lead to the open and spacious salon. The side windows balance form and function, providing ample natural light in a design that complements the yacht’s modern profile. You have more flexibility when it comes to the galley area, which is offered in both an open (shown here) or closed arrangement.
Below, four stunningly appointed staterooms illustrate Viking‘s ability to balance elegance and practicality. The master and three guest staterooms each have a private head with walk-in shower. The forward VIP (above) has a queen walk-around bed and a foredeck skylight.

Our construction methods and materials lead the industry. The hull and deck are resin-infused for great strength in an efficient build. With Dave DeVerter,

Supervisor of 2nd Stage Assembly and Finish Carpentry, overseeing the process, our shipwrights through-bolt the two structures every 3 inches and fiberglass the joint from the inside. Dave is one of the legions of Viking team members who settle for nothing but the best in their efforts to build a better boat every day.

For more information about the 82 Cockpit Motor Yacht, or our 75 and 93 motor yachts, we cordially invite you to contact your authorized Viking dealer.

She’s All That April 5th, 2018

68 Convertible
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

Running on Viking‘s proven hull shape, the 68 Convertible‘s eye-pleasing profile is apparent from every angle. New photos of the four-stateroom blue-water thoroughbred, which debuted less than two months ago at the Miami Yacht Show, reveal why she’s captured the attention of not only Viking enthusiasts but boating and fishing fanatics around the world.

The optional 1945-hp MTU Series 2000 V12 M96L diesels push the 68 C to a 40-plus-knot top end and a 35-knot cruise. With these powerful yet efficient powerplants and a fuel capacity of up to 2,423 gallons, the boat has great range. The Seakeeper 26 gyro enhances stability so you can always enjoy the ride or stay on the bite.

The captain has superb 360-degree visibility from Viking‘s pioneering flybridge center console walk-around helm. The helm and flanking companion seats are joined by port and starboard lounges and a seat forward of the console. Store an abundance of bait or food in the forward top-loading freezer.

The deck design maximizes the space under the 176-square-foot cockpit’s sole. Our shipwrights laminate an aluminum backing plate into the deck for rocket launcher or fighting chair installation. Port and starboard hatches lead to storage for an in-deck fish box, optional live well tub and dunnage box.

Relax in the salon’s port L-shaped lounge while taking in a movie on the 49-inch HD TV (that silently rises from the starboard walnut cabinetry with the push of a button). The galley, with its convenient island counter, is only a few steps away. Facing the galley, the raised starboard dinette seats four comfortably. The midship master has a queen walkaround bed, two hanging lockers, a pair of credenzas, under-bed storage, end tables and a full-size private head with separate shower. 
The 68 Convertible is also offered with an enclosed bridge, which boasts a forward console station, a pod-style aft docking station, a lounge and a custom stainless steel spiral staircase that joins bridge and salon. For more information about either model, we cordially invite you to contact your authorized Viking dealer.

Viking 92
Like us on FacebookFollow us on TwitterView on InstagramView our videos on YouTube

Your family wants a large and luxurious motoryacht with big staterooms, spacious gathering areas and all the latest conveniences and technology. But your dream boat is a bad-ass battlewagon of a sportfisherman with the performance, fishability and accommodations that will put you in the winner’s circle. No worries – you can have both with the Viking 92. 

We offer the 92 in three different models – Open Bridge, Enclosed Bridge and Enclosed Bridge with Skybridge (pictured above). The enclosed bridge is ideal for long-range cruising with its comfortable second salon and protection from the elements, and the skybridge provides the height and visibility benefits of a traditional tower. The cockpit is immense at 238 square feet, and the raised mezzanine is the best seat in the house for watching the fishing action or taking in the sunset.

The luxurious midship master spans the beam, with ample space for a king bed with storage below, a starboard desk/vanity, a port lounge, his and her heads, a 65-inch TV with credenza below and a starboard walk-in closet. The master’s his-and-her head has a shared walk-in shower with separate vanities, heads, sinks and access from the stateroom.

The large wraparound galley includes engineered stone countertops with seating for five, deep-drawer under-counter refrigerator and freezer units (with walnut faces) from Sub-Zero, and an optional corner wine cooler with access from the salon.

On the skybridge, the captain sits in an Ultraleather helm chair aft of a Release Marine teak helm pod with single-lever controls and bow thruster. The MTU Dynamic Positioning joystick is nested in a starboard recessed radio box along with other controls.
Want to know more about this ultimate sportfishing luxury yacht? Contact your authorized Viking dealer who can also provide information about any of our other fishing and motor yachts from 37 to 93 feet.

Viking’s Demo Boats

68 Convertible Running Strong
With the 2018 tournament season ramping up, we take this opportunity to remind you of the importance of our demonstrator boat program and the critical role it plays in building you a better boat every day. Let’s start with this video, which shows our winter demo, the new 68 Convertible, tearing through Palm Beach Inlet on her way home after fishing the Gold Cup earlier this month. 
Each year Viking runs three demonstrator boats – one in the winter and two in the summer. Hands-on experience leads to innovation in all aspects of boat design, from performance, to fishing equipment and features to interior accommodations and comfort. 

Building boats – and using them in the real world – has fueled Viking excellence for decades.

Consistently running, fishing and maintaining the demo boats allows us to showcase our products in the environment in which they were designed to perform. A Viking 68 and a Viking 72 will serve as our demonstration boats this summer.

The leaders of our company are also the guys who fish our demo boats. Director of Design & Engineering Lonni Rutt (left) bumps fists with Sales Manager Mark Waldron after releasing a white marlin aboard the Viking 62 during the MidAtlantic last summer.

Innovative designs, such as our flybridge center console walk-around helm, are often born from on-the-water experiences. 

“Each demo boat is an engineering tool, a design tool, a marketing and sales tool, and a customer service tool,” says Ryan Higgins, Viking Southeast Sales Manager and Demonstrator Program Manager. “With our demos, we can show a level of commitment to our customers that you’ll only find with Viking.”
See the 68 C demo boat and the entire sportfishing and motor yacht family at our invitational 22nd Annual VIP Boat Show Preview February 2nd and 3rd at the Viking Yacht Service Center in Riviera Beach, Florida. Please feel free to contact your authorized Viking dealer for more information.
